Charles Robert Cockerell: Reisen durch reale und virtuelle Räume im Werk eines Archäologen-Architekten

Katalin Schober

Abstract


The article explores the multifaceted practices of Charles Robert Cockerell, a classical traveller touring Greece and the Levant between 1810 and 1817. While the focus will be on a close analysis of the verbal and pictorial techniques used in his depictions of the visited places, the patterns of knowledge formation—in terms of archaeology and architecture—will also be taken into consideration. The theoretical framework as developed by the art historian David Summers will be used as a starting point for a discussion of the manifold ways in which ‘real’ and ‘virtual’ spaces interact in Charles Robert Cockerell’s travel practices and records.
